I entered school at the beginning of the 1960s, firstly an infant’s school at the age of five, then a juniors school at seven, and on to secondary Modern Senior school at eleven. Then you could be spanked, smacked or given the cane if you misbehaved or broke school rules. It was then just what was expected, both by your parents, and you as a pupil at school. During junior and senior school, you would expect to see some form of punishment daily, and end up at the receiving end a at least couple of times a month yourself. In
